    Great trail, some rocky areas and parts where big boulders were blocking the path. But nothing you can't just pick your bike up and over. It was my wife's and I first ride since we bought our mountain bikes! Beautiful scenery with the water to your right hand side most of the ride. Some rocky parts however, but nothing to difficult.

    Nice easy trail, great views of the lake. Nice areas to stop along the way and enjoy the water.

    This trail is best described as a nice flat trail that follows the shoreline of the lake closely. It's picturesque without being aerobically strenuous or technically challenging. This is a trail I like to ride with my kids, taking breaks along the way to swim in a quiet section of the lake.

    The trail was very well kept up and a definate Olympic National Forest must ride. My 11 year old daughter accompanied me and it was a doable ride for her. Do bring the repellent and watch out for ticks as there were plenty of dear and bushes that are on the trial.

    Easy aerobic ability. However, this trail is not as easy as as previous descriptions I've read. It does not stay entirely on the railroad grade, thus there are some moderate to steep, albeit short, climbs in the mud. Several loose rocky areas and a few of these on steep curves overlooking drops above Lake Cresent. The wider two-track portions are gentle riding. My seven year old son rode this on a single speed bike, although there were several steeper sections which he was forced to walk. Beautiful and postcard scenic. Would recommend to those of most levels, but beware it is not flat and most intermediate riders and below will not ride every outcrop or narrow portion, so don't be afraid to walk what you're not comfortable riding.

    The description of this trail is somewhat deceiving. It is a beautiful trail, however, not as easy as described. We took our 8 year old (thinking this was a "family" trail)...there's some areas of single track ascent/descent that were not any fun at all for him. There's lots of areas of washout to be careful of...It is a very cool trail though!
